It's Taiwan's first whisky distillery.
The distillery features a coffee and meal lounge, distillery explanation and tour area, distillery, sales area, whiskey tasting area, orchid garden, and other facilities.

The whiskey's manufacturing process consists of malt harvesting, grinding, adding sugar, distillation, and maturation. Each process is crucial in the maturation and eventual flavor of the whiskey. In order to optimize the maximum capacity produced per year of 9 million bottles, the entire process is controlled by an automated precision instrument system. The changes in the quality of wine are closely monitored, so that an excellent Taiwanese whiskey can be created. Remember, drinking too much can be harmful to your health, and drinking under the age of 18 is prohibited.
